35 For ''whosoever will save his life, shall
lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my
sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he
shall gain the whole world, and lose his own

, 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange
for his soul ?

38 yWhosoever therefore ^ shall be ashamed
of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and
sinful generation ; of him also shall the Son
of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the
glory of his Father with the holy angels.


2 Jesus is transfigured. 1 1 He instructeth his disciples
concerning the coming of Elias : 14 casteth forth a
dumb and deaf spirit : 30 foretelleth his death and
resurrection : 33 exhorteth his disciples to humility : '
38 bidding them not to prohibit such as be not against
them, nor to give offence to any of the faithful.

AND he said unto them, » Verily I say
unto you, That there be some of them
that stand here which shall not taste of
death, till they have seen "the kingdom of
God come with power.





The transfiguration of Christ.

2 IT'' And after six days, Jesus taketh with
him Peter, and James, and John, and lead-
eth them up into an high mountain apart by
themselves ; and he was transfigured before

3 And his raiment became shining, ex-
ceeding ^ white as snow; so as no fuller on
earth can white them.

4 And there appeared unto them Elias,
with Moses: and they were talking with

5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus,
Master, it is .good for us to. be here : and let
us make three tabernacles ; one for thee, and
one for Moses, and one for Elias.

6 For he wist not what to say : for they
were sore afraid.

7 And there was a cloud that oversha-
dowed them : and a voice came out of the
cloud, saying. This is my beloved Son : hear

8 And suddenly, when- they had looked
round about, they saw no man any more,
save Jesus only with themselves.

9 «And as they came down from the
mountain, he charged them that they should
tell no maa what things they had seen, till
the Son of man were risen from the dead.

10 And they kept that saying with them-
selves, questioning one with another what the
rising from the dead should mean.

11 IT And they asked him, saying. Why
say the scribes ^that EHas must first come?

12 And he answered and told them, Elias
verily cometh first, and restoreth all things ;
and show it is written of the Son of man, that
he must suffer many things, and '' be set at

13 But I say unto you, That ' Ehas is

whatsoever they listed, as it is written of

14 H ''And when he came to his disciples,
he saw a great multitude about them, and the
scribes questioning with them.

15 And straightway all the people, when
they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and
running to him, saluted him.

16 And he asked the scribes. What ques-
tion ye II with them?

17 And 'one of the multitude answered
and said, Master, I have brought unto thee
my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he
[[ teareth him ; and he foameth and gnasheth
with his teeth, and pineth away; and I spake
to thy disciples that they should cast him
out, and they could not.

19 He answereth him, and saith, O faith-
less generation, how long shall I be with you ?

20 And they brought him unto him : and
™when he saw him, straightway the spirit
tare him; and he fell on the ground, and
wallowed, foaming.

21 And he asked his father. How long is
it ago since this came unto him? And he
said. Of a child.

22 And oft-times it hath cast him into the
fire, and into the waters to destroy him : but
if thou canst do any thing, have compassion
on us, and help us.

believe, all things are possible to him that

24 And straightway the father of the child
cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe ;
help thou mine unbelief.

25 When Jesus saw that the people came
running together, he rebuked the foul spirit,
saying unto him. Thou dumb and deaf spirit,
I charge thee, come out of him, and enter
no more into him.

26 And the spirit cried, and rent him
sore, and came out of him : and he was as
one dead; insomuch that many said. He is

27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and
lifted him up ; and he arose.

28 °And when he was come into the
house, his disciples asked him privately, Why'
could not we cast him out?

come forth by nothing, but by prayer and

30 IT And they departed thence, and passed
through Galilee ; and he would not that any
man should know it.

31 pFor he taught his disciples, and said
unto them, The Son of man is delivered into
the hands of men, and they shall kill him;
and after that he is killed, he shall rise the
third day.

32 But they understood not that saying,
and were afraid to ask him.

being in the house, he asked them, What was
it that ye disputed among yourselves by the

way they had disputed among themselves,who
should he the greatest.

35 And he sat down, and called the twelve^
and saith unto them, ' If any man desire to
be first, the same shall be last of all, and ser-
vant of all.

36 And "he took a child, and set him in
the midst of them : and when he had taken
him in his arms, he said unto them,



Christ warneth his disciples, Sfc.

37 Whosoever shall receive one of such
children in my name, receiveth me : and ' who-
soever shall receive me, receiveth not me,
but him that sent me.

38 IT "And John answered him, saying.
Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy
name, and he foUoweth not us; and we for-
bade him, because he foUoweth not us.

39 But Jesus said. Forbid him not : * for
there is no man which shall do a miracle in
my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

40 For y he that is not against us, is on
our part.

41 'For whosoever shall give you a cup of
water to drink in my name, because ye belong
to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not
lose his reward.

42 "And whosoever shall offend one of
these little ones that believe in me, it is better
for him that a millstone were hanged about
his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

43 ""And if thy hand || offend thee, cut it
off: it is better for thee to enter into life
maimed, than having two hands to go into
hell, into the fire that never shall be quench-

44 " Where their worm dieth not, and the
fire is not quenched.

45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off:
it is better for thee to enter halt into life,
*han having two feet to be cast into hell, into
me fire that never shall be quenched :

46 Where their worm dieth not, and the
fire is not quenched.

47 And if thine eye 1| offend thee, pluck it
out : it is better for thee to enter into the
kingdom of God with one eye, than having
two eyes, to be cast into hell-fire :

48 Where their worm dieth not, and the
fire is not quenched.

49 For every one shall be salted with fire,
^an^ every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

50 « Salt is good : but if the salt have lost
his saltness, wherewith will ye season it?

Have salt in yourselves, and shave peace
one with another.

2 Christ disputeth with the Pharisees touching divorce-
ment : 13 blesseth the children that are brought unto
hiin : 17 resolveth a rich man how he may inherit life
everlasting : 23 telleth his disciples of the danger of
riches : 28 promiseth rewards to them that forsake any
thing for the gospel : 32 foretelleth his death and
resurrection : 35 biddeth the two ambitious suitors to
think rather of suffering with him : 46 and restoreth

His answer concerning divorce.

2 T ''And the Pharisees came to him, and
asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away
Ms wife ? tempting him.

3 And he answered and said unto them,
What did Moses command you ?

4 And they said, "Moses suffered to write
a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

5 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
For the hardness of your heart, he wrote you
this precept:

6 But from the beginning of the creation,
•■ God made them male and female.

7 «For this cause shall a man leave his
father and mother, and cleave to his wife ;

8 And they twain shall be one flesh : so
then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

9 What therefore, God hath joined toge-
ther, let not man put asunder,

10 And in the house his disciples asked
him again of the same matter.

11 And hesaith unto them, *■ Whosoever
shall put away his wife, and marry another,
committeth adultery against her.

12 And if a woman shall put away her
husband, and be married to another, she com-
mitteth adultery.

13 ir^And they brought young children to
him, that he siiould touch them ; and his
disciples rebuked those that brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much
displeased, and said unto them. Suffer the
little children to come unto me, and forbid
them not: for ''of such is the kingdom of

15 Verily I say unto you, 'Whosoever
shall not receive the kingdom of God as a
little child, he shall not enter therein.

16 And he took them up in his arms, put
his hands upon them, and blessed them.

17 IT "^And when he was gone forth into
the way, there came one running, and kneeled
to him, and asked him, Good Master, what
shall I do that I may inherit eternal life ?

18 And Jesus said unto him. Why callest
thou me good? there is none good, but one,
that is God.

19 Thou knowest the commandments, 'Do
not commit adultery. Do not kill. Do not
steal, Do not bear false witness. Defraud not.
Honour thy father and mother.

20 And he answered and said unto him.
Master, all these have I observed from my

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him,
and said unto him, One thing thou lackest :
go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and
give to the poor, and thou shalt have "trea-
sure m heaven ; and come, take up the cross,
and follow me.


22 And he was

23 H " And Jesus looked round about, and
saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall
they that have riches enter into the kingdom
of God!

24 And the disciples were astonished at
his words. But Jesus answereth again, and
saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for
them "that trust in riches to enter into the
kingdom of God !

25 It is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to
enter into the kingdom of God.

26 And they were astonished out of mea-
sure, saying among themselves, Who then
can be saved?

27 And Jesus looking upon them, saith,
With men it is impossible, but not with
God: for Pwith God all things are possible.

28 IT 1 Then Peter began to say unto him,
Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily
I say unto you. There is no man that hath
left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father,
or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for
my sake, and the gospel's,

30 'But he shall receive an hundred-fold
now in this time, houses, and brethren, and
sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands,
with persecutions; and in the world to come,
eternal life.

31 "But many that are first shall be last;
and the last first.

32 H 'And they were in the way, going up
to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them:
and they were amazed ; and as they followed,
they were afraid. "^And he took again the
twelve, and began to tell them what things
should happen unto him,

33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusa-
lem; and the Son of man shall be delivered
unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes ;
and they shall condemn him to death, and
shall deliver him to the Gentiles ;

34 And they shall mock him, and shall
scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and
shall kill him : and the third day he shall
rise again.

Zebedee, come unto him, saying. Master, we
would that thou shouldest do for us what-
soever we shall desire.

36 And he said unto them. What would
ye that I should do for you ?

37 They said unto him. Grant unto us
that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and
the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

not what ye ask : can ye drink of the cup

tism that I am baptized withal shall ye be
baptized :

40 But to sit on my right hand and on my
left hand, is not mine to give ; but it shall be

unto them, ^Ye know that they which || are
accounted to rule over the Gentiles, exercise
lordship over them; and tlieir great ones
exercise authority upon them.

43 ^But so shall it not be among you : but
whosoever will be great among you, shall be

chiefest, shall be servant of all.

49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded
him to be called : and they call the blind
man, saying unto him. Be of good comfort,
rise ; he calleth thee.

50 And he, casting away his garment,
rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him,
What wilt thou that I should do unto thee ?
The blind man said unto him. Lord, that I
might receive my sight.

52 And Jesus said unto him. Go thy way ;
''thy faith hath || made thee whole. And im-
mediately he received his sight, and followed
Jesus in the way.

two ways met; and they loose him.

5 And certain of them that stood there

11 '^ And Jesus entered into Jerusalem,

even-tide was come, he went out unto Beth-
any, with the twelve.

12 H^And on the morrow, when they were
come from Bethany, he was hungry.

13 s And seeing a fig-tree afar off, having
leaves, he came, if haply he might find any
thing thereon : and when he came to it, he
found nothing but leaves : for the time of figs
was not yet.

No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.
